Forum: GratefulDead Subject: What's your Road Trips wish list?

More or less in this order, mine is:

1) Spring or summer 1970, with a mix of acoustic and electric material. There hasn't been any new 1970 acoustic material released by GDP since DP8, I don't think. WTF?

2) June or July 1976. I defer to the archivists on specifics, but I'd love a good Help>Slip>Franklin, Crazy Fingers, maybe a Dancin', and a Mission in the Rain couldn't hurt. The Cosmic Charlie from 6-14 is excellent.

3) Is there enough miscellaneous material from 1967 in good enough condition to make up a release? If not, more from 1966?

4) late 1972. We've had loads from Europe and from a magical ten-day period in September, but what about the last three months of the year? The second sets from the last two Fox Theater shows in October would each fit on one CD, and a bonus disc could be culled from other material in that run.

I second those selections from 1970 and 1976.
I also would love a "Fox Box" of shows from the Fox Theatre in St Louis 1970/1971.
A box set of the Felt Forum shows from December 1971 would be a good choice too IMO.

Charlie Miller supposedly was asked not to release any of his June 76 SBD's, so I would really like to see a Road Trips of the Upper Darby, PA three day run from 6-22,23, and 24 of 1976.

Agreed that July 76 would be great also.

If a high quality set of discs could be produced I might well like to see the shows from El Monte in late 1970 released.

Much Pigpen content sure has to carry some weight.

All excellent selections Lou, I would purchase each of them.

However my wish would be that they discontinue the Road Trips series and release complete shows, either individually, or in 9-disk/three show boxes as they did with the two Winterland and Terrapin products from last year(s)

While we are on this subject, its getting to be around the time for a release. What are we expecting now, something from '76?

Got it too (Veneta) on DVD (from Amazon) and CDs (from .... err, sorry, here) ........

Methinks what's preventing an official release is the lack of Keith on the visual side. He's playing (we know that he was there) and you can hear him, but do those pesky cameramen (God bless them - without them we wouldn't have what we've got) realise it? No, they prefer to ignore him and concentrate on Jerry, Bob, Phil & Bill ...........

Maybe that's OK for fans of Brent and later but the Keith era was my favourite so I'm sad that he's apparently missing. And, of course, it's not just Keith fans - his omission renders it imperfect ...... and the Dead (flubs aside) always were perfectionists - this flub was too much to ignore.

That's my two cents worth anyway ........

Ho, ho, ho ........

You are SOOOO funny.

The point I was trying to make (the one that obviously flew straight over your head) was, imagine this:-

A Grateful Dead DVD with no .......... Jerry. You can hear him, but you can't see him i.e. bit of a flaw - too much to pass for an official release.

That said, yes, Keith was a 'looker' but I still prefer the child bride (my child bride). I prefer his keyboards, I prefer her looks (and other skills).

May '77 - you mean you want to see the two drummers duplicating each others' strokes to see for yourself that it's true? Plod, plod, plod.

LOL

something from april or may of any given year...

What about March 20th 1970 - a good mix, with a good late era viola lee blues and a fine lovelight... seems to fit the bill

I would love to see the July '76 Orpheum shows. I think 1976-07-18 is the best show of 1976; it would be pretty awesome if that were released in its entirety.

hmmm .........

No arguments with your choices, but mine would be:-

The rumoured Bickershaw Festival 2CD/DVD set - the one that has been talked about (by me at least!) but never quite materializes would do me fine !!!!!!

So, until then, back to that 1/2 aud / 1/2 sbd show (available via LLL/e-tree) & close my eyes and dream of what it might have looked like.

Keep on TRUCKIN' !!!!!!!!

A single cd tha gets scathing reviews is available:

Rare archive film from numerous sources brings together the story of one of the great North West Festivals of the 70's. Over one and a half hours including music/film/stills from the festival.

During the 70's there were only 2 great multi-day greenfield music festivals with camping in North West England, Bickershaw and Deeply Vale. Bickershaw, held on a fairly wet May weekend in 1972 was around £2.25 in advance for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Around 40,000 people attended and the festival inspired many audience members to pursue careers in the music industry.

Featuring tracksfrom : Donovan - Only the blues, Incredible String Band - Weather the storm, Country Joe - Sweet Lorraine, Grateful Dead - Black throat in wind, New riders of the Purple Sage - Watcha gonna Do, Captain Beefheart - Click Clack, Family - Part of the load, Kinks - You really got
me, Captain Beyond - I can't feel nothing past one.

Also features interviews with Jerry Garcia, Nik Turner from Hawkwind, Brian Eastwood [guitar builder] & Mick middles.
